Wiper Party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has suffered a major setback after one of his strongest political pillars Former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama dismissed Kalonzo’s statement that he will support whoever will be backed by Uhuru in 2022.

Kalonzo while speaking at his Yatta home when he hosted different leaders for a consultative meeting insisted that he will be where president Uhuru Kenyatta will be in the 2022 general elections.

“I am saying we are not calculating any more, we know the direction we want to take. I made it clear and I will repeat for the avoidance of doubt. Mahali ndugu yangu Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta atakuwa, in the next election cycle, nitakuwa na yeye hapo.” Kalonzo said.

It is this remarks that seem not to have augured well with the Former Machakos senator. While Speaking during a Christmas service at Machakos Light Christian Centre, Muthama dismissed the delegation to Kalonzo’s home saying that all 5 million Kambas cannot fit in someone’s home.

“Kura zetu zikona sisi haziko na yule anasema anaenda kukaa ndani na Uhuru. Ataenda kuandikwa kazi akae kwa Uhuru afanye kazi yake. As for me I would rather die or be jailed but I can’t tell someone I’m coming to wait for what you will prepare so that I take that.”Muthama said.

The vocal politician asked Kalonzo not to mix politics, leadership and the work he has been given by the President giving an example of the deal between Uhuru and Ruto in 2013.

“As a community we were not in that agreement and yet we are saying we are going to the kitchen to wait for what will be cooked? Hapana!” He added.

Muthama also clarified that the media misquoted him by saying the community was going to back Deputy President William Ruto in 2022. He revealed that the community would negotiate with Mudavadi, Wetangula and all other candidates on an equal platform.

The former senator noted that his plans for a Ukambani leaders meeting at Unoa grounds were on course and that a committee of 7 would be formed to go and negotiate with the other communities.
